About

Matter Press cares for compressed forms. Matter Press will publish prose poetry and compressed fiction print chapbooks. Look for The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts to publish one compressed something online each week. Somethings will likely include (very) tiny fictions, non-fictions, poems, and visual works of art. Matter Blog will feature happenings of compression, decompression, and informal expression as often as is personally possible.

Why do we care for compressed forms? We believe that something very small can add up to something very big, as in the compressed moment of the big bang. We are all small people, made from small pieces. Some small people collapse compression down to insignificance. Some creation needs significant compression. Some creation needs the big to become small, chaos to tighten, enormity to entertain the size of one mind. Very tiny work matters. We want to think about why. We want to think through compression.
